ALABASTER



She is singing just behind him where he sits

Touching him hands lightly brushing

Where his wounds are bleeding

She is singing in his ear caressing him

Washing him gently pouring life-giving oil

Over arms and shoulders until

Sighing, he lowers his head

Gives his burden his weariness up

To rest, when she kneels 

And with her hair wet loving

She soothes his feet grief and pain ebbing away

To dust she is singing

She is here giving him love

Keening until he slips away

Breathing in sleep she rocking him

Gently in her arms
